Track Name: I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you, your face is a hammer in my head
I remember every word you said, I just don't know why I love you
I don't know why I care, I never even liked your hair
I feel like a cell in air, but I don't know why I love you

TELEVISION TURNS ME ON,
WHEN THE SUMMER’S LONG AND THE SPIRIT’S LONG
HOW CAN I GET CLOSE TO YOU WHEN YOU GOT NO MERCY,
NO, YOU GOT NO MERCY, NO, YOU GOT NO

I don't know why I love you, your face is a foreign food
I really don't know if I should, I just don't know why I love you
I don't know why I care, I duck and I weave and I fight
I work just to treat you right, God, I don't know why I love you...
(rock rock rock)

I don't know why I love you, it might be your soul and your heart
Maybe it's the way that you speak I don't why I love you

I don't know why I love you... I don't know why I care
I don't know why I love you... I don't know why I love you
I don't know why I love you... I don't know why I love you
And I don't know why I care
Track Name: Ahora sí!
Aquí estoy yo diciéndote que no otra vez,
que me da igual, que nada va a cambiar,
que esto es el fin, que sí, que yo me quiero ir,
que ahora no lo voy a soportar.

Que nunca más voy a poder,
que nunca más me olvidaré
del miedo que siento por ti.
Que nunca más voy a poder,
que nunca más me olvidaré
del miedo que siento por ti.

No es mi estilo hoy pero al decir que no...
sabes que estoy diciendo que sí.
Otro paso más y sí sabré volver...
tengo todo el tiempo para mí.

Que ahora sí me vais a ver,

porque ahora sí, ¡yo soy el rey!
(sonrío yo vuelo por ti!)
Que ahora sí me vais a ver,
porque ahora sí, ¡yo soy el rey!
(sonrío yo vuelo por ti!)

Aquí estoy yo diciéndote que sí otra vez...
Track Name: Some people try (to fuck with you)
Somebody try to show you how to feel, you know,
and not get sucked into the void
you couldn't even see the water from your view,
and it's a word that you enjoyed

SOME PEOPLE TRY TO FUCK WITH YOU
THEY’LL GET DOWN ON YOUR LUCK WITH YOU
SOME PEOPLE TRY TO FUCK WITH YOU
THEY’LL GET DOWN ON YOUR LUCK WITH YOU

I had a smile for everyone, though I was dead behind the grin
Chris you know you got me in the kind of mood, that I like being in
Never gonna sleep around again, cause I got you by my side
You know that I'm the man that you were dreaming of
in the Scottish countryside

SOME PEOPLE TRY TO FUCK WITH YOU
SOME PEOPLE TRY THEIR LUCK WITH YOU
SOME PEOPLE TRY TO FUCK WITH YOU
SOME PEOPLE TRY THEIR LUCK WITH YOU
Track Name: Down to the waterline
Sweet surrender on the quay side,
you remember we used to run and hide
In the shadows of cargoes, I take you on time,
Counting all the numbers down to the waterline

Near misses on the dogleap stairways,
french kisses in the darkened doorways
Foghorn blowing out wild and cold
A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder

Up comes a coaster, fast and silent through the night
Over my shoulder, all you can see are pilot lights
No money in our jackets and jeans are torn,
your hands are cold but your lips are warm

She can see you in the jetty where you used to go
she can see you in the places where the sailors go
when she's walking down the river on the railway line
she can still hear you whisper, let’s go down to the waterline, come on
Track Name: Tan lejos
Fue tanto tiempo que los dos cansados de bostezar
decidimos vivir separados.
Al principio lo más normal se convirtió en obsesión
descubriendo en qué había cambiado.

Ahora tan lejos me hace daño creerlo,
te echo de menos de corazón.
Sé que ya es tarde para empezar de nuevo.
No hubo remedio, fue un error.

Era una forma de olvidar aquello que fue peor
y quisimos no haber conocido.
Desde entonces nada es igual tan distanciados tú y yo
conociendo a nuevos amigos.
Track Name: Nobody's twisting your arm
And when I called your house,
I'm sure your sister thought that I was somebody else
I heard a laugh down the phone,
and then the answer came that you weren't at home
You know I never go there,
because I hate to dance and you really don't care
Why don't you go on your own?
how can you lie there and say that you'll come back alone?

OH WELL THAT’S FINE, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE
NOBODY’S TWISTING YOUR ARM,
HERE’S THE KEY, THERE’S THE DOOR
OH WELL THAT’S FINE, I DON’T CARE ANYMORE
NOBODY’S TWISTING YOUR ARM,
HERE’S THE KEY, THERE’S THE DOOR

Before we go back in,
what about those secret smiles that you were giving to him? oh...
just "somebody you met",
well I go out of my way and this is the thanks that I get!
I'm just a slave to your greed, I'm not the kind of boyfriend that you need
But if you'd like me to go,
you'll get no trouble from me, just so long as I know

I don't love you anymore
Track Name: The sun always shines on tv
TOUCH ME, HOW CAN IT BE?
BELIEVE ME, THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON TV
HOLD ME CLOSE TO YOUR HEART
TOUCH ME AND GIVE ALL YOUR LOVE TO ME... TO ME

I reached inside myself and found nothing there to ease the
Pressure of my ever worrying mind - Oh oh
All my powers waste away, I fear the crazed and lonely
Looks the mirror's sending me these days - Oh oh

Please don't ask me to defend the shameful lowlands of the
way I'm drifting gloomily through time - Oh oh
I reached inside myself today thinking there's got to be some
way to keep my troubles distant.
Track Name: Who loves the sun
Who loves the sun?
Who cares that it makes plants grow?
Who cares what it does since you broke my heart?

Who loves the wind?
Who cares that it makes breezes?
Who cares what it does since you broke my heart?

PA, PA, PA, PA. WHO LOVES THE SUN?
PA, PA, PA, PA. WHO LOVES THE SUN?
PA, PA, PA, PA. NOT EVERYONE.
PA, PA, PA, PA. WHO LOVES THE SUN?

Who loves the rain?
Who cares that it makes flowers?
Who cares that it makes showers since you broke my heart?

Who loves the sun?
Who cares that it is shining?
Who cares what it does since you broke my heart?
Track Name: Watch over you
See the clouds and see the sun and see yourself
I wanna be, I wanna be like this no man
See the men and see the neck and you´d include
Can you see it, can you see they bite your neck

Will fly above the town one more time
will lay you, will lay you, watch over you

See the clouds and see the sun and see yourself
I wanna be, I wanna be like this no man
See the men and see the neck and you´d include
Can you see it, can you see they bite your neck

Will fly above the town one more time
will lay you, will lay you, watch over you
Today´s the day that all the world will see
I´m a boy, I´m a boy, will never die
Track Name: Material girl
Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me, I think they're O.K.
If they don't give me proper credit I just walk away
They can beg and they can plead but they can't see the light (that's right)
Cause the boy with the cold hard cash is always Mister Right,
'cause we are

LIVING IN A MATERIAL WORLD
AND I AM A MATERIAL GIRL, YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE
LIVING IN A MATERIAL WORLD
AND I AM A MATERIAL GIRL

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance, that's all right with me
If they can't raise my interest then I have to let them be
Some boys try and some boys lie but I don't let them play (no way)
Only boys who save their pennies make my rainy day,
'cause they are

Living in a material world (x6)
Track Name: No danger
I've been hanging round for days, still confused about the way you came
Take the portraits from the wall, take them down and burn them all
I know what I've become

By the marks upon their arms,
there was nothing that they lacked in charm
but now I've got to choose who from you is gonna lose
and who is going through

By the stories that were told, I decided to reject the bold
embrace the cowardly and the weak, we had laughs that lasted weeks
they're inside and I sing here

Now I would swear this life is you,
you've been around since we were twenty-two
but now you've got the rush when you're cold and when you're touched
I know things don't mean much

'CAUSE WE DON’T KNOW WE’RE STRONG ENOUGH
AND CHANCES COME TOO SOON
BUT PEOPLE, PEOPLE, WE’RE NOT IN LOVE
AND NOW WE’RE SINGING OUT OF TUNE

Just go out and get it straight, there are questions here that just can't wait
Leave romantics to their spite, leave the footballs to their pints
alternatives we'll find

But there's nothing we can find, while our lives are plush and kind of fine
So we'll all call it a day, people follow in our wake
a nothing's hall of fame
Track Name: Bike
I've got a bike, you can ride it if you like
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and things to make it look good
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it

YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL THAT FITS IN WITH MY WORLD
I'LL GIVE YOU ANYTHING, EVERYTHING IF YOU WANT THINGS

I've got a cloak , it's a bit of a joke
There's a tear up the front, it's red and black, I've had it for months
If you think it could look good, then I guess it should

YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL THAT FITS IN WITH MY WORLD
I'LL GIVE YOU ANYTHING, EVERYTHING IF YOU WANT THINGS

I know a mouse, and he hasn't got a house
I don't know why I call him Gerald
He's getting rather old, but he's a good mouse

YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL THAT FITS IN WITH MY WORLD
I'LL GIVE YOU ANYTHING, EVERYTHING IF YOU WANT THINGS

I've got a clan of gingerbread men
Here a man, there a man, lots of gingerbread men
Take a couple if you wish, they're on the dish

YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL THAT FITS IN WITH MY WORLD
I'LL GIVE YOU ANYTHING, EVERYTHING IF YOU WANT THINGS

I know a room of musical tunes
Some rhyme, some ching, most of them are clockwork
Let's go into the other room and make them work
